Vegan Kebab Mediterranean Grill

All of the menu items are crafted from 100% Gardein meat — a meat substitute made of soy, wheat and pea proteins — and flavored with the same spices and condiments as a typical kebab. Gardein is lauded for its unique ability to assume the stocky textures of meats ranging from more common ones like chicken to those more obscure, such as lamb.

Try their Chicken Rocket Sandwich, one of the most popular items, largely a result of how it mimics both the flavor and texture of a real chicken shawarma wrap. A warm pita is stuffed with shredded “chicken” that has an elastic texture when bitten into, much like real chicken meat. Tender potato slices add a starchy consistency to balance out the firmness of the “chicken” inside. All of it is smothered in spicy garlic butter.

The gyro sandwich, another popular menu item, consists of chunky Gardein meat, thinly sliced like a typical gyro. The meat is coated in savory spices then blended with tomatoes and pickled bell peppers to form a slightly tangy and aromatic gyro stuffing. A creamy tahini paste adds unexpectedly cool tones to finish off an otherwise spicy dish.

They even have a vegan baklava.
